New disruptive technologies and the digital revolution have been rapidly transforming the nature of how companies are interacting with their customers. Moreover, in recent months the global pandemic has caused an abrupt change in customer consumption habits accelerating the digitization of the way they access to products and services. In this context, executives in all industries are using digital advances such as analytics, mobility, social media, IoT and smart embedded devices as well as improving traditional technologies – such as ERP – to fulfil the emerging needs of their customers and improve their experience. However, transforming the experience of the digital customer does not imply only to integrate new technology, but requires also to adopt a customer centric approach that places the individual customer at the centre of organization, processes and roles. As a consequence, the workshop “Transforming the Digital Customer Experience” is at the corner between technological progresses and business advances by focusing in how the mix of new technologies and new organizational models can help in developing services to improve the experience of the digital customer. The workshop embraces concepts from Computer Science, Information Systems, and Business Administration areas.

The goal of the workshop is to identify challenges from digitization of the customer relationship and to make progress, such as tools, methodologies and frameworks, to deal with these challenges.
